Abstract
Many common clustering algorithms, such as the fuzzy C-means and the classical k-means clustering algorithms, proceed without making any assumptions about the form of the detector that will use the parameters that they determine. We compare the performance of a radial basis function (RBF) network with parameters that are determined using a modified fuzzy clustering procedure to that of an RBF network with parameters that are determined using a least-mean-square- error (classical) clustering procedure. As part of the fuzzy clustering procedure, we assume a particular functional form for the fuzzy membership function. We train and test both of the networks on simulated data and present performance results in the form of receiver operating characteristic curves.
